....And may not be there tonight. Smart of them.
I don't think I can handle Ozero after last nights brain numbing debate with Brian Williams.
People could use the Twitter approach.
2) you lie,
4) repeat, and
Some categories may be two-fers. We could each keep our own running totals.
Believe he dissed them in last year’s speech on the campaign finance reform decision and one of them who was there shook his head at him or something. Would be funny as hell if none of them showed this year.
That happened two years ago, didn’t it?
Either last year or year before. No love lost from the Supremes.
Don’t agree to drink if he says billionaires or millionaires...its not good to get that wasted so just let this go.
I did not listen to him sing the song but I saw the article about it. I heard that song yesterday it was being used in a commercial. I loved that song, but now all I can think of when I hear it is Obama. He has ruined it for me.
Great thread title!
That said, I’m not sure my stomach is strong enough to watch it. Well, the stomach is, but the blood vessels in the brain probably aren’t. I think I’ll wait for a Freeper distillation combined with reviewing the choice quotes in tomorrow’s press.
I think he looks like a freak and I can’t even stand his voice.
Could be. All his BS runs together for me.
Thanks for this thread, I’ll be able to see if anything notable was said or done, but as for turning on the TV for this?
That rancid Kenyan turd can KMA.
I turned my TV off and it’ll stay off until 9 PM
He has ruined it for me./
That scumbag has ruined alot of things. I used to like the song too.
His voice is tough but I can listen from another room so as not to look at him.
Oh how I wish Mark would do live commentary.
I am hoping the same thing, but Mark is doing pre-speech
commentary on his program. Hope springs eternal, all the same!
Ah the sound of silence is good!
Grab the duct tape! Here it comes!
Boehner sounds drunk on his arse!
Normally I follow these things, but two nights of this stuff?
Dont look directly at the Won.
Unless he is a vampire. Then the only way to save him is to run a stake though his skeevy heart.
Bring a cross.
For the drinking game, here are the words:
Me, my, I, for starters. Then there are:
Middle class, and fair (in any form).
Sorry, I'm a cop out. I can't stand to listen to the guy, but will drink every beverage the First lady brings to me...
I have the Tv on and The Biggest Loser is on.
BTTT. Awesome thread title!!
Boehner was calling out names of various folks, and he was slurring....but then again, I have always considered him an alcoholic.
Here's tonight's live thread, FRiends...
Another thread worth checking out:
You’re probably not watching Fox News but that would apply there too...Krauthammer. He still doesn’t get it. He did say if he pronounces Newt dead a 3rd time he should lose his medical license and I say he ought to turn in his pundit card too.
If lies are crap. Obama has severe chronic diarrea.
Well, here goes.
LORD PLEASE HELP ME TO NOT HAVE A STROKE OR BREAK MY TV!!
I’m not going to look at him, I’ll just listen and scream alot!!
I have made a decided to go silent on this one, no viewing or listening, period.
I have this daydream that Obama is up there and his teleprompter shorts out and after a couple dozen “uhhhhs” and six or seven “um um um”s and a couple “I I I”s, an aide rushes up with a paper copy and he continues on for twenty minutes never looking up at the audience.
Oh, and when he steps away from the podium it is obvious he’s wet himself.
In a perfect world Krauthammer would just retire and take McCain. He could help McCain kind of a buddy program. Thanks guys.
That good drinking game that I think can keep up with LOL!
That good drinking game that I think can keep up with LOL!
Every SC Justice present tonight EXCEPT Scalia.
“Five Things to Watch for in President Obamas State of the Union Address
Posted by Katie Boyd on January 24, 2012
If President Obamas past addresses are any indication, this years State of the Union will sound like a broken record in more ways than one. In all three previous addresses President Obama has delivered, he has called for more of the same failed policies that are hurting the economy, and offered nothing more than empty rhetoric when it comes to addressing the spending-driven debt crisis and creating a better environment for job creation. With the past as prologue, heres a look at what Americans can expect to hear from the president this evening:
MORE JOB-CRUSHING TAX HIKES. In every State of the Union Address President Obama has given, he has called for job-crushing tax hikes that will hit an estimated 50 percent of small business income, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation. Economists warn that the presidents tax hikes would discourage hiring by many smaller businesses and even members of his own party refuse to support them. The bipartisan opposition to raising taxes should come as no surprise, as the president himself once warned that higher taxes mean smaller paychecks and fewer jobs.
MORE FAILED STIMULUS SPENDING. In 2009, President Obama delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress exactly one week after signing the trillion-dollar stimulus into law promising it would save or create 3.5 million jobs. The plan was a bust leaving Americans with 600,000 fewer jobs than when the stimulus was enacted, and an unemployment rate stuck above eight percent for a record-breaking 35 consecutive months. Two years later, President Obama made his call for more government spending the focus of his 2011 State of the Union, proposing to redouble the same stimulus efforts that fell short. Out-of-touch Democrats have proven time and again that they wont let the stimulus failures get in the way of their reckless spending spree, expect more of the same this year.
MORE EMPTY RHETORIC ON FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY. In 2009, President Obama said it has never been more important to do what it takes to bring this deficit down, promising to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. One year later, he warned that if we dont take meaningful steps to rein in our debt, it could damage our markets, increase the cost of borrowing, and jeopardize our recovery all of which would have an even worse effect on our job growth and family incomes. The discrepancy between President Obamas rhetoric and his record is glaring. Since taking office, Democrats in Washington have piled $4.6 trillion on to the national debt which has now eclipsed the size of the entire U.S. economy and tripled the deficit. Instead of leading, President Obama punted with his 2011 budget a remarkably weak and timid document that failed to cut spending or address the skyrocketing debt. And it appears the president is poised to offer more the same failed policies this year, further extending the damage Democrats policies are causing the economy.
MORE WORDS WITHOUT ACTION ON REINING IN REGULATIONS. Last year, President Obama ordered a top-to-bottom review of government regulations and pledged that when we find rules that put an unnecessary burden on businesses, we will fix them. The results of the review drew yawns and more sharp criticism from job creators who said they did not go far enough to roll back the onslaught of red tape coming out of Washington. There are currently more than 4,000 regulations in the pipeline, 219 of which will have a major impact on the economy. If President Obama is serious about keeping his pledge, he should urge Senate Democrats to pass the nearly 30 bipartisan jobs bills many of which rein in excessive government regulations - collecting dust on their doorstep.
A NEW SLOGAN? With observers already characterizing the State of the Union as President Obamas big campaign speech, it only seems reasonable to expect more slogans than solutions from this years address. Since President Obama decided to stop governing months ago, it is clear that 2011s winning the future has already given way to 2012s winning the next election. So what fleeting catch phrase does Presidents Obama have lined up for us this year? We cant wait to see.
Anyone know if “Date Night” is still on for the RINOs and traitors?
Time to start the Sham of the Union Drinking Game!!! If I stop responding call 911 :D
Take some deep breaths.
Michelle Obama seating with “an openly gay Air Force colonel,” per Rachel Maddow.
Yes, date night is on again this year.
Hillary was NOT the Cabinet member who gets to sit this one out.
So, the night is probably safe for all attendees.
Everything he touches turns to —— (the word is not gold)
I suppose that is his plan.
Im not going to look at him, Ill just listen and scream alot!!
My neighbors will think I am having a major case of Tourettes. I may be in Houston, but this neighborhood (Medical Center) is major libland.
That is so cute! Thanks!
